Aladdin Trailer

Meh.

by Anonymousreply 5610/13/2018

The guy they cast as Aladdin looks so wrong for this role.

by Anonymousreply 110/11/2018

It's directed by Guy Ritchie. It'll be a dismal flop.

by Anonymousreply 210/12/2018

Doubtful. These Disney remakes do well regardless of who's directing.

by Anonymousreply 310/12/2018

A "Live-Action" picture with a 99% CGI trailer. OK then.

by Anonymousreply 410/12/2018

Ominous music? Check.

Variation on the least-remembered melody from the original? Check.

Gloomy, apocalyptic superhero-movie mood? Check.

Crumbly, incomprehensible voice acting? Check.

Shiny CGI? Check.

Briefest shot possible of any living human being but only in the last few seconds? Check.

This looks fucking horrible.

by Anonymousreply 510/12/2018

It’s horrible. Next.

What about Mulan?

Mildly stimulating

God forbid they show some skin.

Why call it live action movie when most of it is CGI anyway? I mean I bet even the actors are CGI'd to death to make them look like they fit in that CGI world.

Everyone wants to see Jasmine!!

That was a very drawn out teaser trailer....

Do "we" really need EVERY Disney cartoon turned into a CGI "Live action" film? I'm looking forward to "The Emperor's New Groove", "The Rescuers" and "Robin Hood".

The new Aladdin

by Anonymousreply 1310/12/2018

Without Williams as The Genie, there is no other Disney version of "Aladdin".

by Anonymousreply 1410/12/2018

They are doing "live action" Lion King that will be all CGI, these movies let Disney repackage the same story and make a shit ton of money. They aren't going to stop.

by Anonymousreply 1510/12/2018

Can you imagine how exquisitely PC it must be, because it’s set in a non western culture and when formerly told featured all sorts of stereotypes about middle eastern civilization?

Meanwhile in Turkey movies are being made about Americans being organ stealing vampires and they are #1 at the box office.

by Anonymousreply 1610/12/2018

Couldn't they at least cast a hot Aladdin?

by Anonymousreply 1710/12/2018

I want a live action Hercules with a big blond Adonis.

r14 Excuse me?

Are Lin-Manuel Miranda and Meryl in this one, too?

by Anonymousreply 2010/12/2018

It will probably be fun popcorn movie fare. It will look great and we all know the story. I think the lead is actually a good fit for the scrappy urchin role.

by Anonymousreply 2110/12/2018

Not a great trailer .

by Anonymousreply 2210/12/2018

It's weird how Disney is releasing Dumbo, Aladdin and The Lion King in a space of four months. I hope the public overdoses on these crappy films (like they did on Star Wars) and at least one of them flops.

by Anonymousreply 2310/12/2018

Dumbo's the highest risk. Aladdin's gonna be fine and The Lion King will likely be a big fat hit. Imagine the press on that thing with Donald Glover and Beyonce out and about.

Such an underrated movie.

by Anonymousreply 2510/12/2018

Dumbo is a Tim Burton movie. He had great success with Alice in Wonderland. I wonder if that will be enough to secure a big and successful blockbuster ticket sale hit for at least the first weekend making it profitable?

by Anonymousreply 2610/12/2018

There's just as much information in this teaser as the beauty and the beast teaser trailer, which was all cgi tracking to a rose. This one has a person. Just imitating the marketing of an extremely successful film. Nothing original.

by Anonymousreply 2710/13/2018

I'm disappointed in the actor playing Aladdin too. With all the ridiculously hot Arab guys in the world, they had to pick that bug-eyed guy.

by Anonymousreply 2810/13/2018

Also, where is Aladdin's sexy floppy hair?!

by Anonymousreply 2910/13/2018

Avan Jogia with long hair would've been the perfect Aladdin.

by Anonymousreply 3010/13/2018

Too much CGI.

[quote]Also, where is Aladdin's sexy floppy hair?!

The 90s called and they took back floppy haired Aladdin with Tom Cruise's 90s hair

by Anonymousreply 3110/13/2018

Technically, isn't Aladdin supposed to be... Chinese?

by Anonymousreply 3210/13/2018

So that old tiresome buffoon, our favourite house negro is playing Genie? Christ this will be awful

by Anonymousreply 3310/13/2018

Will they at least acknowledge that Aladdin is one of those peace-loving Muslims?

by Anonymousreply 3410/13/2018

Jafar is smoking though

by Anonymousreply 3510/13/2018

I hate Will Smith wish they had cast Terry Crews as Genie he would kill it

by Anonymousreply 3610/13/2018

Navid Negahban (Abu Nazir from Homeland) is in this

by Anonymousreply 3710/13/2018

Why does the genie have to be black? Why not middle eastern/indian like the rest of the main cast.

by Anonymousreply 3810/13/2018

R32 Aladdin is an Arabic name how is he supposed to be Chinese?

by Anonymousreply 3910/13/2018

R32 yes, Aladdin lived in China. His father was Mustapha the sailor

by Anonymousreply 4010/13/2018

Jafar should top Aladdin, as punishment for the guy they have cast as Aladdin not being nearly hot enough, this guy is not dreamy middle eastern fuckable

by Anonymousreply 4110/13/2018

Aladdin (Arabic: علاء الدين‎) is a folk tale of Middle Eastern origin. It is one of the tales in The Book of One Thousand and One Nights ("The Arabian Nights"), and one of the best known—but it was not part of the original Arabic text, being added in the 18th century by Frenchman Antoine Galland, who attributed the tale to Syrian storyteller Youhenna Diab.

Since it first appeared in the early 18th century "Aladdin and the Magic Lamp" has been one of the best known and most retold of all fairy stories.

by Anonymousreply 4210/13/2018

R40 Mustapha is an Arabic name too

by Anonymousreply 4310/13/2018

*tailor, not sailor

the beginning of the tale from Burton's translation of Arabian Nights:

"IT hath reached me, O King of the Age, that there dwelt in a city of the cities of China a man which was a tailor, withal a pauper, and he had one son, Aladdin hight. Now this boy had been from his babyhood a ne'er-do-well, a scapegrace. And when he reached his tenth year, his father inclined to teach him his own trade, and, for that he was overindigent to expend money upon his learning other work or craft or apprenticeship, he took the lad into his shop that he might be taught tailoring. But, as Aladdin was a scapegrace and a ne'er-do-well and wont to play at all times with the gutter boys of the quarter, he would not sit in the shop for a single day. Nay, he would await his father's leaving it for some purpose, such as to meet a creditor, when he would run off at once and fare forth to the gardens with the other scapegraces and low companions, his fellows. Such was his case- counsel and castigation were of no avail, nor would he obey either parent in aught or learn any trade. And presently, for his sadness and, sorrowing because of his son's vicious indolence, the tailor sickened and died.

Scheherazade was thinking about saving her own life! She hadn't thought too much about geography when she placed Aladdin and Mustapha in the middle of China

by Anonymousreply 4510/13/2018

At one of point of the tale in Arabian Nights, Aladdin asks to go back to China and the whole Sultan palace and everyone in it is transported from Morocco to China

I mean, it doesn't have to make sense. It is a story about a magical lamp afterall

by Anonymousreply 4610/13/2018

There will be so many Buzzfeed articles and Tumblr posts lusting after Jafar when the film comes out.

by Anonymousreply 4710/13/2018

Avan Jogia looks like my brother, R30.

We’re not Middle Eastern, we’re Cuban.

by Anonymousreply 4810/13/2018

Thanks OP. That's exactly what I thought when I saw that empty 'teaser'.

by Anonymousreply 4910/13/2018

It's just a teaser. Meant to get all the Disney frau mussies wet.

Like this trailer for all the superhero Geeks 10 years ago.

by Anonymousreply 5010/13/2018

There's way more footage in that Iron Man teaser than there was in this Aladdin one.

by Anonymousreply 5110/13/2018

It's so fucking lazy of Disney to keep remaking their own cartoons as live action films. I remember when they used to get flack for churning out low-budget direct-to-DVD sequels, but even THEY more originality in them than these remakes.

I hate Zayn Malik for being a drugged out anorexic bitch with the personality of a plank of wood. Otherwise, he would've made a beautiful Aladdin
